“I received financial assistance while at SIU. Now I have a job and want to support SIU in return. I hope this gift helps other deserving students to receive a quality education.”

James Kass

“I give back to SIU because I love my university. I plan to give as much as I can now and in the future — whatever my means will enable me to provide.”

Norma Faust

“People at SIU have not forgotten me as an alumna. Some seek my advice. Others include me in events and continue to make me feel special—and did even before they knew I had included SIU in my will.”

Amit Singh

“SIU Carbondale has a special place in my life. I was one of the severely injured students in the Pyramid Apartment fire at SIU in December 1992. I benefited from the generosity of SIU community members during my recovery period. I am giving back a little to express my gratitude and fund engineering scholarships for current and future SIU students.”

Ravi Dhungel

“Motivation and support from faculty and staff instilled confidence, skills and knowledge to succeed in the U.S. I completed a double major in Geographic Information Science and Computer Science.”
